VIII. Slightly hazy ambery brown colour with small off-white head. Aroma is wood, canilla, caramel and some slight wooden notes. Flavour is fruity, some slight roasted notes along with quite strong tart wooden notes. This left a bit strange in my books.

65 cl bottle @ PBF VIII
Aroma has sweetish woody notes, some caramel, toasted notes and vanilla. Flavour has sweet caramel and toffee notes. Also some vanilla and wood. Definitely not your typical stout. Also makes me wonder what barrel was used since I cannot taste it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a whole lot of ruby when held up to the light. Very assertive coffee mocha aroma. When tasting, the aroma and flavors combine to form a coco puffs cereal type flavor combination with a hint of coffee. Its actually quite tasty. I’ll definitely have to pick up some more...
